    I know the pics aren't great but this bird is a little skittish. It is 6 months old and I know nothing about Appenzellers. Thanks in advance for your help.


    Well, since it was unanimous a rooster I'm pulling the pics to make room for more. Maybe a GFM would ease my pain. [​IMG] Thanks again for the help

    It's a roo and I wish I had one. I have three hens instead [​IMG]

    Definitely a rooster. The pullets and hens never get that big of a hairdo. He has a great forward pointing crest too [​IMG]

    Here's a pic of some of my flock

    I agree, I have three pretty little hens and two of them lay almost every day. I have posted a want for hatching eggs on the Wanted board but nothing so far. One of my hens has really nice spangling but the other two are rather poor. Need to hatch a good roo.
